Review: Art History, Volume II [with CD-ROM]

User Review  - Daniel - Goodreads

okay for a first intro , lacking in technical details a lot of the time I guess. Should re-read the 2nd last chapter in the near future. Read full review

Review: Art History, Volume I (w/CD-ROM)

User Review  - Melanie - Goodreads

Didn't read EVERY page as some periods interest me more than others, etc. Very organized and concise and the pictures are well done on the digital version. (Love that you can zoom in on them quite nicely.) Read full review
